Due to a water main break, a voluntary boil advisory has been issued for some customers of Callaway 2 Water District.

Those affected are in the following areas:

* Part of State Route D between State Route O and Highway 94,

* County Road 4053

* Highway 94 and all roads in the town of Portland.

The boil advisory will remain in effect until 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

To be on the safe side, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, during a boil advisory, tap water used for drinking should be boiled first. Water for pets should also be boiled. Bottled or boiled water should be used when brushing teeth or preparing baby formula.

Avoid swallowing water while bathing or showering. When cooking, make sure to bring water to a boil for a minute before adding ingredients.
